Package of two kogin needles. Note: These are not sashiko needles. Strong shaft, large eyes and slightly rounded tips make these excellent kogin stitching needles. They are a big needle, 2 1/2" (7cm) long. They would be good needles for visible mending on knitted fabric because of the slightly rounded tip, also for needlepoint and darning. The tips are made to pass between the warp and weft of the fabric without catching in the threads the way a sharp needle will.
